It's a cold blustery October afternoon.
Halloween is on the horizon
and with no wee ones in the house I do not fuss much with the decor.
It's a shameful lack of energy that is behind my lack luster efforts.
Look at this
lazy nod to the season
a lonely orange pumpkin sits
waiting by the door of The Humble Bungalow.
Janet has spruced up a pumpkin with paint and sparkles
she got the idea from another blog.
We have a set of pumpkin lights that we will string in the window
and yellow danger do not cross tapes.
That's about it.
looking rather witchy
black garments abound...
Ralph Lauren pants
Stuart Weitzman black patent leather shoes with velvet bows
black with white spidery patterned top ?
(it had an irritating tag that chafed my neck so it was cut out immediately)
How about an orange feather boa
or a scarf?
I need a punch of orange for our school black and orange day.
Some staff members go all out and dress up
with holiday themed earrings, necklaces,
ties that light up
orange nail polish
over the top make up
and while it works for them it just doesn't feel like me.
I do not want to be seen as a poor sport but I have never really taken to dressing up
my style is much more sedate
boring perhaps, conservative definitely!
Yet I do need something and I am on the hunt for just the right orange accent...
Tish Jett has a fabulous orange tote on her blog today which is quite tempting.
I'm not sure that I have ever owned any orange garment
unless one counts that smattering of orange on my Lanvin scarf
(you can see it on the sidebar of my blog)
I am planning to hit the stores this weekend
what would you suggest?

Have a delicious weekend...
I think there will be some chocolate on the menu here.
